another baby and poop

(how's that for a blog post title to get your attention)

So, the other night, we were leaving the mall, and Jack asked me,
"So, people choose if they are going to have another baby?"

not really wanting to go "there", I replied with a simple,
"Yes, people choose to have babies".

After a long pause, he replied...
"Sooooooo....we are choosing NOT to have another one, right?
Because that would be like double trouble with Molly".

Later, Molly read her favorite book, Everyone Poops.

Molly wasn't feeling good this morning.
And, by morning, I mean 2:00 a.m.
She was SCREAMING because she had an ear ache.

Luckily, Nana saved the day. She came up here, and stayed with Molly while I took Jack to school and got my sub plans ready.

This video isn't from today, but this is how we feel when Nana comes over.

public service announcement

I am interrupting this blog for a public service announcement...

Some of you never "knew" Bella...and sadly, never will never get a chance.
But, I want you to "meet" someone that I don't even know.
Tripp also has EB.
Please watch this video...

Go ahead...I will wait :)

Now, want to help find a cure for EB?

Text BELLA to 50555 to donate $5 to the UofM EB Research!
Type YES to the confirmation text.

How easy was that?

nothing new here

Well, except that this little girl is a champ on the potty now.
I learned from my experience with Jack to just keep it low key.
And that's working so far.
We are so proud of her!
Oh...and these came in the mail today!
That's pretty exciting!

Did you see the pictures I took at the park last week? Cute boys!
I want to also thank all the support as I venture out into the photography world.
It's been a fun leap so far!

and the Oscar for best writing...

...goes to Jack Cooper.
He's clearly thinking of big things.
Flashbacks and Explosions.

No romance, just yet...

I said I wouldn't...

but I did.
I was only going to post my "photography" shots on
my other blog.
That's what I said.
BUT, then, I took these...
and well, how could I resist??

I am pretty committed to helping the Ringgolds find a cure for EB.
They deserve it. All EB babies deserve it.
So, if anyone wants a photo session, knows someone
who may, or if you want to give a session as a gift,
here's what I am doing through Bella's 2nd birthday in May:
(or longer if we still need money for P.U.C.K.)

$75 session
$25 donated to P.U.C.K.
30-45 minutes
20-30 edited pictures on a cd
* Now, I SAY 20-30, but, as I learned with Brooklyn,
I take WAY more that that!

MNPK: Molly & Nana Pizza Kitchen

Since making soup together was so much fun,
Molly and Nana made pizza last week!

Again, Molly tasted everything as she worked.
The sauce was yummy!
Also, note the tiny bites out of the crust...
which happened while Nana wasn't looking!
Cheese...some for the pizza,
some for her mouth.
Sneaking the pepperoni...
Thanks, Nana, for taking the pictures!
